    1. Scope

    1.1This specification covers metallic-coated carbon steel wire used in the manufacture of chain-link fence fabric and marcelled tension wire. Three types of coatings are covered:

    1.1.1Type IAluminum-coated (aluminized),

    1.1.2 Type IIZinc-coated (galvanized), and

    1.1.3Type IIIZinc-5 % Aluminum-Mischmetal (Zn-5Al-MM) alloy-coated.

    1.2 The chain-link fabric woven from wire in this specification is covered separately by Specifications A 491 for Type I, A 392 for Type II, and F 1345 for Type III.

    1.3 The marcelled tension wire manufactured from wire in this specification is covered separately in Specifications A 824 and F 1664.

    1.4 This specification does not cover the wire used for Specification A 392 when the chain-link fence producer applies the coating after the weaving process.

    The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in brackets are provided for information only.
